What parents need to know
Parents need to know that The Signal is a low-budget sci-fi movie involving three college-age teens. It has a few twists that are better not discussed, though younger viewers who've seen fewer sci-fi movies will be more surprised than veteran viewers; suffice it to say that there are definitely some "jump shock" moments. There's a little blood, mostly in a scene in which a minor character is shot; bloody wounds are also shown, and there's some fantasy-style fighting and chasing. Two of the characters are a couple, and they're shown kissing (there's also a close-up of the girl's underwear-clad behind). Expect some strong language, including a few uses of "s--t" and "a--hole."
